From behind the plate, the Baby Tiger’s pitches were sharp.
KIA’s Yoon Young-chul, the Baby Tigers’ pitcher, threw a half-pitch before the game against LG at KIA Champions Field in Gwangju on April 27.
The weather in Gwangju was cloudy and overcast that morning. Due to the late start the day before, KIA’s batters were warming up and practicing indoors, while only the pitching staff took to the field.
Yoon Young-cheol threw sharp pitches with a simple pitching form. His pitching motion was enough to deceive the batters, as he hid the ball right before throwing it and had a sharp delivery.
On April 24, Yoon made a start against Daejeon Hanwha and pitched six innings, giving up three hits (one home run), three walks, and one run.
Although he didn’t get the win, he pitched six innings, surpassing his previous career high of 5.1 innings, and earned his first career quality start (QS-6+ innings-3 earned runs or less).안전놀이터
Yoon’s next start will be on Wednesday, May 31, against the Gwangju KT.
Lee Yi-ri, who did not throw many pitches due to his headshot ejection against Hanwha on the 25th, is scheduled to take the mound on the 30th after being rested, so Yoon’s start has been pushed forward.
